Lee RitenourFeel The Night ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
Sweet electric fusion from Lee Ritenour – a key album from a time when he was still very much at the top of his game!

Freddie RoachMo' Greens Please ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the raunchiest albums ever cut by organist Freddie Roach – not as high-reaching as some of his later work, but with lots of short tracks that groove with a tight jukebox organ/tenor approach! The band is a strong one – with Conrad Lester on tenor, Eddie Wright on guitar ... read more CD

Riverside, 1958. New Copy ... $4.99 11.98

Bjarne Rostvold TrioTricotism ... CD
RCA/Be! (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Not the usual album you might expect from a group with a trio in the name – as there's no piano in the mix, and instead the album features some sparkling trumpet from the great Allan Botschinsky – heard here at the height of his youthful, modern powers! The combo's led by drummer ... read more CD

Omega/VSOP, 1957. New Copy ... $10.99 13.99

Krzysztof SadowskiNa Kosmodromie (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pronit/GAD (Poland), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99
A hell of a record from Polish organist Krzsystof Sadowski – one that mixes his own Hammond with wordless vocals, reeds, and rhythms – all in a style that really fits the spacey image on the cover! Key to the record is singer Liliana Urbanska – a vocalist with that higher range ... read more CD
